A Finish & A New Book..

A finish...so nice to have a finish!

This Bento Box quilt was made from some of the Japanese fabrics that were left over from my Japanese quilt of my previous post!
It was a nice easy quilt to make... not one that I would make for myself...so it might just end up in my Etsy shop...I'll see!

A new scrap book arrived yesterday... one of my Tuesday p/work friends had this book and I loved it. I Googled it and there it was on Amazon.....not new, this one is an ex library book, but as good as new for a fraction of what it would have cost new....of course postage always adds to the cost!

Not sure if this is clear enough for you to see...but here is one of the quilts in the book. Look at all those tiny pieces...dated 1870!
Off to patchwork today..
Have a lovely day...happy stitching....♥

  1. Lovely quilt,Julia.
    Always try www.bookdepository.co.uk when buying books. They have free postage worldwide and it works out alot cheaper than buying books here.
